THE MUST HAVE PIECE OF THE VACATION PUZZLE.
If relaxed beach days and exploring hot climates are on your holiday itinerary then a sun hat is also on the list.
True, they look stylish and can effortlessly boost your summer outfit but more than that they act as a barrier to protect us.
Wearing a sun hat whilst outdoors shields our eyes, hair and skin from the sun’s rays. Though SPF must still be slathered everywhere, a hat provides the added protection, including around our neck and ears.
Sun hats can be misunderstood, with lots of us thinking we look silly in them. We don’t, at least I don’t think so.
There are various styles to suit depending on individual taste. If you are understated with your fashion try a fedora as they are smaller in size. When you want to resemble elegance on your beach walk try a wide-brimmed straw hat. Or if oversized and glamour are you on vacation try a dramatically oversized hat, you won’t go unnoticed.
Protect your hair when a dip in the pool is required to cool you down too. If you’ve just about had enough of washing your locks every evening, wear a vintage swim cap to protect your hair from drying out in the sun and by the chlorine.
Always make certain that there’s space in the suitcase. Don’t think twice about ticking ‘sun hat’ off your vacay checklist.
